For the first time in ACCG history, the annual conference will feature a keynote and capnote speaker.

Keynote Speaker: Mark Richt

Friday, April 29
8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

You may recognize Richt as the former head football coach for the University of Georgia and the University of Miami. He is no stranger to being a part of a team. From coaching college football to serving as a studio analyst for the ACC Network, he is all too familiar with what it takes to be a team player.

Make plans to attend the Opening General Session as Coach Richt dives into what it means to be a leader and the importance of going above and beyond. Mark will provide attendees with a unique take on teamwork and going the extra mile.

Capnote Speaker: Meagan Johnson

Sunday, May 1
9:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

Meagan Johnson is a nationally recognized multi-generational expert and generational studies enthusiast. Since 1997 she has researched, written, and spoken about the multiple generations. Johnson’s presentation on “How Generational Differences in the Workplace are Driving the Resignation (Renegotiation)” will highlight the challenge of retaining five generations in the workforce during the Great Resignation. Now more than ever, the workplace landscape is changing. People are rethinking their jobs, lifestyles, and careers. Counties are facing the challenge of ensuring tenured professionals continue to feel appreciated, keeping young people engaged, and filling vacant positions.

Join this informative session to find the right balance between the conflicting needs of each generation to maintain harmony and a well-equipped staff. This session could be what your county needs to fill employment gaps that are impacting the way services and resources are provided to your constituents.
